So... I don't do manicures or pedicures at the salon... like ever. I did for my wedding over 15 years ago and hadn't been back since until two weeks ago. My friend's son got married two weekends ago and she was going to get her nails done and didn't want to go alone. I offered to go with her and ended up getting shellac/gel nail polish on my fingers. I was amazed at how well it held up to everything I did to them! I got my nails done on Thursday and the following Sunday was my son's confirmation and party at our house, so I was planting flowers in the backyard, I did mulch, I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned and my nails were still just as shiny as they were the day they were done! So, now that I'm all gung ho about gel nail polish, do any of you do this at home? I know if I want to do it at home I have to get a UV or LED light (not sure the difference) and of course I'd need to buy nail polish too. If you do your own nails at home, what kind of light should I get? I found one on Amazon for about $27 that was highly rated. Also, where you buy the gel nail polish and what kinds do you like?
